A 90-year-old pilot from New City suffered head injuries after crashing his two-seater plane at the Orange County Airport in Montgomery on Wednesday, according to multiple reports.

The man, who was aboard a homemade aircraft, lost control after takeoff, according to News 12 .

The aircraft flipped after hitting runway lighting just after 1 p.m. The FAA has already ruled the crash an accident, but it will still be investigated by the National Transportation Safety Board to find a probable cause, lohud.com reported.
